    Dumbo Hand-Painted Premiere Banner (Walt Disney, 1941). "Every time his funny whistle sounds... (toot toot) ...everybody hurries to the circus grounds!" Dumbo premiered on 10/23/41 at the Broadway Theater in New York City. Here is a magnificent 22'5" x 34" Dumbo Grand Opening Premiere banner, showcasing Casey Junior and the entire circus train. It reads "Walt Disney's Full Length Feature Production -- Production in Technicolor -- Casey Jr. The Talking Train -- The Flying Elephant -- 'DUMBO' -- The Biggest Little Circus on Earth." The conductor looks a little like Ward Kimball! Yellow satin fabric with yellow fringe, entirely hand-painted. Metal completes line at the top. It is not known for certain what theater premiere it was used for, but the banner was found in New York. One of the most amazing finds from this film we've seen. Minor wear, but mostly Very Good condition.
